Sunday Reads: The Week in ‘Star Wars’

We’ve spent much of this last week discussing the Star Wars franchise from every possible angle, but for people who, like me, refuse to watch Star Wars, it might as well be gibberish. At this point, for those of us who haven’t cared what happened a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, the biggest reason we’re unlikely to start now can be chalked up to pure stubbornness. 

That said, I do have a full week off ahead of me for Christmas, and I suppose it might be time for me to cave and finally wat –– SIKE. I love being in the dark! 

Anyway, for those of you who can’t get enough of Jedis, porgs and scruffy nerfs (I had someone help me with the lingo), here’s more Star Wars content than you can handle.
